Jennifer Brea’s film to have world premiere at Sundance Festival in January | 30 November 2016

Press release issued by David Magdael & Associates, Los Angeles.

The feature documentary Unrest – formerly known as Canary in a Coalmine – has been selected as one of the highly anticipated narrative documentaries to receive a world premiere at The Sundance Film Festival at the Sundance resort in Utah, USA in January 19-29th 2017, it was announced today.

Director Jennifer Brea was a journalist and academic studying for a PhD at Harvard. Months before her wedding, she became progressively ill, losing the ability to even sit in a wheelchair. When told by her doctor it was “all in her head,” her response was to start filming from her bed, gradually deploying crews globally to document the world inhabited by millions of patients that medicine forgot.

Unrest tells the story of Jen and Omar, newlyweds facing the unexpected, and the four extraordinary M.E. patients that Jen meets throughout her journey, in the United States, UK and Denmark. Together, they explore how to make a life of meaning when everything changes. The film is a feat of disability filmmaking, made with an international team and using innovative technologies to allow the bedbound, disabled director to travel the world and film as if she’s in the room.

Unrest is a story of resilience in the face of life-changing loss, of how we treat people with illnesses we don’t fully understand yet, about how confronting the fragility of life can teach us its value, and ultimately, about the need we all have to connect.

Director & Producer Jennifer Brea said:

“I am thrilled and honored that this documentary film is launching at Sundance, one of the most prestigious international film festivals in the world. M.E. upended my life and I battle with its debilitating symptoms everyday. Still, it has been the privilege of my life to make this film. It is with thanks to the collaboration of an amazing team and a host of wonderful supporters that we have been able to share unheard stories of what it is to fight against a life-long, invisible illness.”

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) is a systemic neuroimmune condition characterised by post-exertional malaise (a severe worsening of symptoms after even minimal exertion). It causes dysregulation of both the immune system and the nervous system. The effects of M.E. are devastating enough to leave 25% of patients housebound or bedbound. In many parts of the world, it is commonly known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

It is estimated that at least 1,000,000 Americans, 250,000 British people, 100,000 Australians, and 100,000 Canadians have M.E. An estimated 75-85% of them are women and 80-90% of them are undiagnosed. *Estimates vary depending on the diagnostic criteria used.

Unrest is made with the generous support of:

Impact Partners, the William F. Harnisch Foundation, Chicken & Egg Pictures, BRITDOC’s Good Pitch, the Tribeca Film Institute, the Fledgling Fund, IFP, Women in Film Los Angeles, the Sundance Institute, and over 2,500 backers from a Kickstarter campaign in 2015.

Why It’s a Good Thing When Family Members Push Our Buttons

Humanoids Argue

“If we learn to open our hearts, anyone, including the people who drive us crazy, can be our teacher.” ~Pema Chodron

You love them most of the time. You can’t stand them some of the time. But in the end, family is family.

I’ve never liked to admit it, but I am just like my dad. Close in birthday, same number 5 life path in numerology, both risk takers, very passionate and adventurous, fun-loving, and witty, and we lead by example. That’s positively speaking.

However, it becomes a negative pattern to focus on the other side of the coin. We both have the ability to become angry, withdrawn, and addicted to drama, and we both try to please everyone then resent others for their own imbalance.

Do you think it’s any surprise the family you were born into?

I used to blame my snappy behavior on my dad, whether at work, with girlfriends, or in social environments. “It’s my conditioning,” was my excuse I told myself. That’s exactly what it is from my perspective—an excuse.

On closer self-reflection, I found myself getting angrier and angrier that I was like my dad and becoming more like him.

Even though he’s a great guy, whenever I had a frustrating moment or lost my temper, I would blame him. No accountability or responsibility for my beliefs and actions, or the decisions I had made that led me to my current state.

What this did was further fuel my anger because I began to resent myself too.

I didn’t love myself as a “whole,” warts and all. I only wanted to see the positive stuff, but that became harder to do when I didn’t acknowledge, understand, and process my shadow as a part of who I am. This neglect strangely disabled my ability to enjoy the more positive aspects of my nature.

From my perspective, my dad was waking me up to own my anger and helping me see how it was also of benefit and service to me.

This moment came to a head at a FedEx Office when an employee made a remark to me that made me feel stupid. Well, that’s how I interpreted it at the time anyway. I hadn’t read the signs on how to use the self-service computers, and the employee reminded me in a condescending tone to read the signs over to my left.

That was enough for me to lose it. “What the hell did you just say to me?” I snapped.

I went from zero to a thousand in an instant and kept shouting like a crazy person. I could feel my head boil. It was then that a friend called on my cell. I stepped away, while the employee looked stunned and embarrassed by my behavior, while the women in line clutched their pearls so to speak.

I picked up the call and subconsciously said, “Don’t mind me, just having a moment here at Fed Ex. Snapped like my Dad.”

There went the finger of blame. Once again, I refused to accept that I could behave that way. My easy-going nature was where I liked to focus my awareness.

The idea that I could sting with my words in a heartbeat, I chose to neglect. It reminded me too much of my dad and how I didn’t like it when he cut me off from a sentence or adamantly refused to see things from my perspective. It was his fault that this was becoming an all too familiar occurrence was my excuse.

Thankfully, my friend on the phone is also a mentor, so he reminded me it was time to take a closer look.

“If your dad is the constant focus of your anger, what is he trying to wake you up to? Can you see he is subconsciously summoning you to investigate a part of yourself that desperately needs attention?” he asked.

It’s hard looking at yourself in the mirror when you may see an aspect of yourself you deny. But in order for me to understand my anger, I needed to become familiar with it and take responsibility.

By owning the positive side of my angry outbursts, I could stop judging myself and release blame directed at my dad.

Sound a little weird? Stay with me.

At home with a pen and paper, I wrote down every benefit I could think of, which told me how being angry was also of service to me. Some benefits included:

  • Anger helps me take action; the fire within motivates me to go after what I really want. It helps me create tunnel vision and to block out anything or anyone that I see as a distraction to my goals.
  • It adds to the emotion and depth of my writing, which can only add to its authenticity.
  • It gives me an opportunity to practice accepting my shadow side. I don’t need to fight my anger; I just need to understand it and become more mindful of how I use it. This becomes a practice of accepting myself as I am.

By the time I had finished this exercise, which quickly became a page and a half, I felt a huge weight had lifted. The more self-aware I became, the less my anger bubbled to the surface.

I believe that was because I let myself off the hook. I forgave myself for being angry and forgave my dad for how he was. That in of itself was a huge weight to lift off my chest. Understanding it made me calmer and accentuated my ability to enjoy the more “positive” aspects of my nature.

This is, I believe, what my dad was waking me up to. I’ll say it again:

Do you think it’s any surprise the family you were born into? Think about it. And for better or worse, considering the amount of time we spend with our families growing up, it comes as no surprise that certain family members seriously push our buttons.

Why do they push our buttons? To help us discover what we’re meant to work through in this lifetime. Simply put, to help us grow. They are our teachers to help us wake up to parts of ourselves that need attention, understanding, and in some cases healing.

When rubbed the wrong way, the idea is to be able to take a closer look at ourselves and grow. What are these button pushers trying to teach us? Why do we react the way we do? What pain point are they touching? Are we willing to admit this and address it? Are we willing to not take it all so personally?

I believe that there are no accidents. I believe that our birth into our individual families is not random. Even if you don’t share this belief, you can still choose to see your challenging relationships as opportunities for growth, thereby empowering yourself instead of victimizing yourself.

The invitation to grow can help us be more empathetic, compassionate, loving, self-aware, trusting, authentic, confident, and less self-absorbed, jealous, envious, uncooperative, angry, and impatient.

You might be thinking, “Well, my brother bullies me,” or “My mother was abusive.” Sure, they might have been and probably were. But what do we know about hurt people? They hurt others.

Put yourself in his or her shoes. Imagine how much he is hurting or what dis-ease she has in her body? You have no idea what it is like to walk in their shoes. And look, it doesn’t give them a “get out of jail free card,” but it does give you an opportunity to become stronger and more self-aware, and to tap into a deeper understanding of your authenticity.

Maybe the bully of the family is summoning you to stand up for yourself, believe in yourself. Maybe your mother is calling for you to treat yourself with more kindness, so you can then teach others how to be kind.

I could go into a billion examples in family relationships, but the point I’m making is that your family is designed to help you grow. The task at hand is to wake up and pay attention to what each one of them has to teach you.

Parliamentary ME/CFS Questions | Luton North MP piles pressure on government over PACE, NICE, treatment strategy and direction of research |

In some of the fiercest parliamentary questioning about ME/CFS ever, Labour MP Kelvin Hopkins (Luton North) has tabled a stream of questions about the PACE Trial, the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence guidance, treatment strategy and the direction of research.

On 17 November, he asked the Secretary of State for Health, with reference to the PACE trial, Pacing, graded Activity and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, if he will ask NICE and the NHS to revise their approach to treating myalgic encephalomyelitis to removing references to Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Graded Exercise Therapy.

Health minister Nicola Blackwood MP replied on November 23:

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) is an independent body and is responsible for ensuring that its guidance remains up to date. NICE has advised that it has brought forward the next review date for its guidance on the diagnosis and management of chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis from 2019 to 2017 to coincide with the expected publication of relevant new evidence.
NICE’s aim is to make a decision on whether an update of the guideline is required by the end of 2017.

Mr Hopkins came back to the subject on November 22, when he asked the Secretary of State for Health, if he will institute a revision of NICE guidelines for chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalopathy.

He also asked if the Health Secretary “will remove CBT and GET from the list of treatments for ME patients”.

On 25 November, Nicola Blackwood replied to both questions:

I refer the hon. Member to the Answer I gave on 23 November 2016 to his Question 53645.

In parallel questioning to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, who holds the purse strings on medical research, Mr Hopkins moved up several gears.

On November 22, he asked two questions to that Department:

1) If the Secretary of State if he will request that the Medical Research Council conducts an inquiry into the management of the PACE trial to ascertain whether any fraudulent activity has occurred.

2) If the Secretary of State will prevent the PACE trial researchers from being given further public research funding until an inquiry into possible fraudulent activity into the PACE trial has been conducted.

On 25 November, Jo Johnson MP (Minister of State for Universities, Science, Research and Innovation) replied to both questions:

Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy indicated that it will not be possible to answer this question within the usual time period. An answer is being prepared and will be provided as soon as it is available.

And there’s more.

Newcastle University experts in hunt for “smoking gun” of chronic fatigue syndrome ME | The Northern Echo | 29 November 2016

From The Northern Echo, 29 November 2016. Story by Tony Kearney, News Editor (North Durham).

University scientists are leading research to develop a simple blood test for the chronic fatigue syndrome ME.

Researchers from Newcastle and Oxford Universities have been awarded £50,000 funding from the ME Association to spend 12 months analysing nearly 300 blood samples, looking at metabolomics – chemical clues that are left behind after changes in cells.

Finding similarities in the cells of patients diagnosed with ME could help identify a test for the condition – and ultimately a cure.

Dr Charles Shepherd, medical adviser for the ME Association, said: “Put simply, this is the hunt for a smoking gun.

“This could be a major breakthrough.

He added: “Once and for all, we would be able to dispel the myth that ME should be treated as a psychological illness which is primarily in the mind.”

6 Moves to Awaken Yourself to the Day

Woman stretching in morning with sun

How you start your day can set the tone for how you walk through your life. Taking the time to intentionally wake your body from the depths of slumber will allow the transition to be a smoother, softer experience.

We often think of stretching as a first step to get the body moving, but it’s wise to get the body moving first, and ease into a connection between the mind and body that will serve you all day long. You can begin with this method or move straight into the following series. Start slowly with each of these moves, and as they become more familiar, you can sink into the experience of them in a deeper way.

  1. Shaking and bouncing the body. This Qigong technique is meant to release any energy blocks as well as tonify the organs and stimulate the lymphatic system. Stand with feet hip width apart, keeping knees soft and arms hanging at your sides. Gently start to bounce your body up and down, keeping your feet on the floor. Let the bounce reverberate throughout your body. Start with 1 - 3 minutes, ending with standing still and taking a few deep breaths.
  2. Open your heart. Starting your day by opening your heart, both physically and emotionally can create space in so many ways. Standing with feet hip width and pelvis neutral, inhale and lift bent arms in front of you. Exhale and connect with your heart space. Inhale and gently draw your shoulder blades together, feeling the front of your chest and your heart open. Exhale and draw your chest in, feeling space between your shoulder blades. Repeat as many times as you need to feel connection, ending with your hands in front of your heart, offering gratitude to your body.
  3. Connect with your core. When we move through our day with a strong connection to our center, we are able to do everything with better alignment, physically and mentally. Still standing in a neutral position, draw your belly button to your spine without changing the tilt of your pelvis. Imagine the deepest layer of muscle fibers that wrap around your waist sliding towards each other, offering more support through your center. A fun way to do this is laugh, preferably loudly and uproariously; you will feel those muscles engage.
  4. Strength and balance. This will begin to connect you with your strength and wake up your balance receptors. With feet hip width or slightly wider, toes turned out just a little, sink your hips back, as if sitting into a chair behind you. Maintaining a strong core, sink as low as you can, keeping your knees behind your toes. Press through your heels to bring yourself back to standing, and then reach your arms up and come onto the balls of your feet. Start slowly, and create a more invigorating movement as you feel able to.
  5. Stretching the sides. Our side bodies are often forgotten as we move forward through our day. From a neutral standing position, inhale both arms up, then exhale as one arm stays reaching up as the other arm reaches down. Feel the stretch from the top of the lifted arm, all the way down the same side of the body to the earth. The arm that is reaching down should feel that it is reaching toward the center of the earth, grounding the body. Inhale as you extend both arms up, exhale and switch which arm reaches up and which arm reaches down.
  6. Vision pose. Rather than being at the mercy of how you wake up feeling in the morning, use this exercise to set the tone for how you want to feel as you step into your day.

Anxiety, Your New BFF: How It Can Help You If You Let It

Anxious man

“Be grateful for whatever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.” ~Rumi

Anxiety—a frequent, uninvited visitor.

It hovers; it comes and goes. It underlines. It overpowers. It stops you in your tracks. It pursues you as you run away.

My anxiety’s appearance is often marked by a buzzing, electric-charge energy. I used to jokingly compare it to a predatory yellow jacket. They used to terrify me. Since I was stung too many times, this insect was definitely not on my list of BFFs.

Once I was driving my then seven-year-old daughter and her friend to school when a real-life yellow jacket began to buzz in the enclosed car space. It looked fierce and angry and armed with a vicious stinger.

Repressing my panic, I pulled the car over.

“Okay, girls, there’s a yellow jacket in the car. I’m going to open the doors and we’ll all exit quickly!”

My daughter’s friend Evie remained in her seat. With a quiet calm, she extended her finger, beckoning the insect to alight upon it. When it did, she welcomed its arrival with a smile and escorted it outside.

The yellow jacket flew off.

“All you have to do is treat them nice and they’re your friend,” Evie informed us. “I love ‘em.”

Years later, I awoke one morning, the alarm of anxiety resounding in my ears. Unlike my phone, I couldn’t shut it off. Hearing the buzz of worry and gloom, I dreaded getting up to face the day.

Then I heard something else. A buzz. But this wasn’t coming from me; it was a yellow jacket flailing against my nightstand.

With mindful attention, I was able to escort the tiny creature to the window so it could fly away. The momentary connection with an insect and the cessation of the buzzing noise was a gratifying experience. Plus, the bug did not sting me.

I wondered, what if my anxiety were something I could “treat nice”? My usual approach is to eliminate or ignore it.

What would it take to befriend my anxiety?

What did it take to befriend a yellow jacket? Mindful caution and courage (they do sting), and a challenging compassion. A calm patience. 

Maybe I could treat my anxiety as my BFF.

Isn’t a best friend someone who reminds you of your past mistakes and helps you avoid a re-run? A friend encouraging you to take time to treat yourself better? A cheerleader excited for your success?

Over time I have discovered that anxiety can do that for you, if you’re willing to change your perspective. Below are a few examples that may surprise you.

Stop, Listen, and Engage

One of my closest friends was coming for a visit. We had a no-plan of fun, a goal of aimless walking around the city. I had spent the morning alone, writing and finishing up paperwork. All of it enjoyable productivity.

Getting ready for her arrival, I noticed an underlying stream of anxiousness. To be honest, I was furious that anxiety arrived during this completely stress-free moment.

Remembering my vow to welcome anxiety as my BFF, I began to ask “her” questions.

What are you anxious about?
I just am.
That was too broad a question, so I became more specific.

The apartment looks fine but are you worried it’s not neat enough?
Its not that.
I noticed that the reassurance calmed her down a bit.

Are you worried that we have no specific itinerary?
No.
I smiled at the immediate response. Neither one of us is a planner.

I’m dressed, but I could put a little makeup on, would that help?
Maybe.
I did, it helped. But there was more.

Sitting down, I took a few breaths.

Can you explain what your nervousness is about? I waited.

In a rush, a torrent of talk tumbled out.
Its too much. You were quiet all by yourself and now you have to go out and do noisy things.

A light bulb went off. I saw the issue.

It’s about transitions? You find them challenging?

The clarity of the Aha! burst open in a single word:
YES!

Transitions, in any degree, represent change, which requires special attention. My habitual response is to move fast, to move without thinking, to move on now!

That doesn’t work for me anymore.

I summed up where I had been (quietly writing alone), where I was going (a walk in Manhattan with noise and bustle).

But above all, I checked into where I was NOW in the moment, which was not being able to connect the two.

A few minutes were all it took to regain serenity and gratitude to my BFF Anxiety. She had highlighted something I’d overlooked my entire life.

While your own inner dialogue may differ, it is possible for you to stop, listen, and engage in a conversation with these inner anxious voices.

It Doesn’t Have to Be a Big Deal

Sometimes, your anxiety is only asking for acknowledgment. A few breaths to clear your mind and give you more oxygen, a sympathetic word, or a short walk outside may be the answer.

I have a client who gets a manicure to ease her spirits. When her mom was in hospice, she had them done. “I know it may seem superficial, but I have fond memories of my mother doing my nails for me when I was little and feeling sad. I look at my hands and feel like at least one thing in my life is okay.”

Short-term solutions to anxiety’s sudden appearances can go far to alleviate symptoms of unease.

Warnings to Watch

There are moments when a deeper dialogue with anxiety is required.

A friend had what seemed to be the perfect relationship. Sexy and smart, her boyfriend had a good sense of humor, enjoying his work and life. Together, they were happy, but separated, my friend’s anxiety skyrocketed.

She decided to focus on the nature of her anxiety and began a focused inquiry with this energetic.

“I wanted him to be the one, but I was the one making unconscious concessions. So I stopped and listened to what my anxiety was reporting back to me.”

Rather than eliminate or ignore her anxiety, she took a hard look at what was actually going on. She didn’t feel seen in this relationship. Her desires were overlooked, and, worse, they were de-valued if brought up. Her boyfriend was subtle about this exchange, as he could be quite charming. But my friend felt out of the loop.

She ended that relationship and started dating someone else. When, once again, Anxiety appeared, she was flustered. Taking on the premise that anxiety is her BFF, she listened. This time the message was different.

As it turned out, she needed to proceed more slowly, as she was suffering from relationship PTSD. In actuality, there was excitement about this new prospect.

Don’t your human best friends nudge you to practice self-compassion, encourage you to take risks, and then cheer your success?

Anxiety can do that as well.

Looking at Your Lifestyle

A client came to me for an acupuncture session. “Everything’s going great. My career has skyrocketed, my family is fine. But most mornings, I can barely get out of bed; the anxiety is that strong. I can’t figure out why I’m a wreck when I should be so happy.”

Going into further detail, it came up that he was sleeping barely four hours a night, overdosing on caffeine throughout the day, skipping workouts, and having a few drinks at night to offset the coffee. While his life was exciting, it was not sustainable.

We devised a plan that was workable.

He came in the following week, his anxiety diminished. “I’m good, but I’m in shock,” he reported. A colleague had dropped dead of a heart attack at the age of forty-five. “The timing is bizarre, and yet I have to look at what role anxiety plays in my life. I want to listen better.”

It’s not that you have to become a purist Spartan, but being aware of your relationship with your physical body and how that corresponds with your anxiety (another relationship!) is a key factor to your overall health and peace of mind.

You’re Not Alone

Life is scary at times. Tragedies, death, loss, rejection—suffering surrounds us.

When experiencing these challenges, anxiety can show up in full force, adding to the overwhelm.

If you listen, you will hear what you can do to buffer the harshness of events.

Perhaps the mere recognition of the situation’s gravity can bring relief. Maybe a few gentle considerations can change the terrain. Maybe you need support from others.

Maybe you need to get your nails done.

As a BFF, anxiety can remind you to slow down and take care of yourself. To have compassion and empathy for yourself and others. To remember your aliveness and your capacity to transform.

If you listen, really listen, you’ll hear what may help.

Treating anxiety as a friend, the messages will come to you in a whisper rather than a shout. This invisible force will align with you, if you align with it.

This friend may be an over-worrier, she may nudge you, she may even resort to scaring you. But this BFF (Badass Friend Forever) just may bug you enough to finally discover—and cherish—your magnificence in human form.

What magical messages is your new BFF bringing to you?

Beautiful Things Can Happen When We Step Outside Our Comfort Zone

Calm Woman Meditating on Sunset Beach, Relax in Open Arms Pose

“As you move outside of your comfort zone, what was once the unknown and frightening becomes your new normal.” ~Robin S. Sharma

I recently arrived in my new home city of New Orleans. I came here for a change and to refresh my spirits, and I’m so glad I did. It’s truly an uplifting and unique city. Coming here certainly shifted me out of my comfort zone, as I’m originally from California.

However, what I know from past experience is that breaking free of what’s comfortable is an ongoing, step-by-step journey. Simply put, it’s not enough that I’m here. I have to consciously keep embracing this expansion.

When I first arrived here I felt that feeling of love and happiness I get when I travel to places that truly feel special. A warm, humid breeze blew past my face when I stepped out of my car. The house I’ll be staying in had a big blue door, and I’ve found bright colors and old fashioned, French Creole homes are the norm here.

As I was being checked into my house, some neighbors came out to let my landlord know her car was blocking their driveway. They all knew each other, so the exchange was friendly, and it ended with them saying they were having a party that night for an engagement.

They invited me to come, and I wanted to say, “Really? You want me to come? But you don’t know me and I don’t know the people getting married!”

There was something about their instant openness and receptivity that I wanted to question and second-guess. But they meant it. They really did invite me, an unknown and random person, to the engagement party they were throwing for a friend.

I went home and I knew I had to go. It made me nervous, as I would be showing up to a private event alone, without any chance of bumping into a friendly face. There would be no buffers. No safety nets. Just me. And that’s why I had to go.

I had to go because it would be uncomfortable. I had to go because we spend so much of our lives going out of our way to avoid this exact kind of scenario.

There are few things we dread more than feeling stranded and awkward in a room full of strangers. But the funny thing is, we’re also obsessed with this exact feeling—the feeling that life happens outside of our comfort zone.



You know those signs that say, “This is your comfort zone” and then have a circle drawn around the words? Somewhere outside of the circle it always says, “This is where the magic happens.” Yeah, you know. They’re kind of ridiculous signs. You cannot sum up what it means to get outside of your comfort zone in a quaint little sign.

Getting outside your comfort zone comes with intense feelings. If there are too many unknown factors we tend not to want to go into that space at all.

We do not think of magic and glitter when someone says, “This is going to make you deeply uncomfortable. You might feel embarrassed. You might feel alone. You might feel incapable and even afraid.” Instead, we tend to think of all the reasons we should say no to the opportunity.

Part of this is because we don’t see every uncomfortable opportunity as being worth our time. Why should I go to a random engagement party and be weird and make other people feel weird? The reason is because these little moments of discomfort prepare you for the big ones.

What you really want, that thing that really is outside of the circle and has all the rainbows and the unicorns, when it does show up, it’s going to rattle you and shake you up and turn your world upside down. But you can handle it. You can.

The best way to know you can handle it is to practice and show up when it’s inconvenient, all the time, basically saying yes to everything. You will get so comfortable with being uncomfortable that the lines will in fact blur and you will flow with life, at ease no matter how rough the waters.



After I showered and got myself dressed I walked like I knew what I was doing to the neighbor’s house. If you’ve never read up on how body posture can you make you feel powerful, you may want to. It’s honestly life changing knowledge.

I walked into the party and everyone was dressed in suits and dresses. I was wearing leggings and a cotton striped shirt. It’s the nicest thing I had. It was okay though. I was expecting to be out of my comfort zone. I was diving in, head first.

Had I let the clothing stop me, I would have missed seeing something amazing.

A man showed up to this fancy party in a sleeveless Fred Flintstones shirt. The shirt had a tie painted on it, so in truth, he may have actually dressed better than me. But it just showed me that all of the time we obsess over not having the right clothes or look or whatever is so absurd.

There is always going to be a person in the equivalent of a Fred Flintstones shirt, and more often than not, you’re going to wish you were that person because they are totally carefree.

After getting a drink I found a couple at a table that looked uncomfortable and like they didn’t know anyone. I descended on them and introduced myself with a firm handshake.

I let them know I didn’t know anyone, I was invited that afternoon, and I was just going with it. I had an okay time talking to them. Just okay. There was no magic.

Eventually they saw some other people they knew and I was abandoned.

Everyone at the table was talking to someone but me. I wasn’t sure what to do. I knew at this point my presence was weird. But you know what? No one has ever died from being uncomfortable. So I just rolled with it.

I sipped my drink, looked around, and considered if I should stay or go.
I decided to hang out a bit longer because I wasn’t quite ready to walk away.

I lingered in the corner alone, probably looking a little creepy. I grabbed another drink and listened to a speech and I realized then that I didn’t want to leave. Being a little uncomfortable but surrounded by happy people, live music, and an amazing vibe sounded a lot better than being comfortable and sitting on the couch watching Netflix.

I then grabbed some food and saw a guy standing alone at a table. This was when I finally found the magic. Not the kind of magic that ends in us realizing we’re soul mates. The guy was actually nineteen (I’m thirty-four), and soon after I started talking to him his mom came over.

They were two of the most amazing people I’ve ever met. I was so relieved I hadn’t run off when it got hard. I was relieved I was there, to meet this guy, who was so smart and interesting and who made me think, “Wow, I wish I could follow his journey and see what kind of impact he makes. I know he’s going to do something awesome.”

I was so delighted with these people who didn’t look at their cellphones the whole night. It’s been a long time since a stranger has given me that much of their time and attention just because. To feel a connection like that, with people I’d just met… magic.

Magic. Glitter. Unicorns. It was all there. I just had to ride the wave and let it happen.

And those other people who abandoned me and avoided eye contact the rest of the night? I bet they’ll never even remember meeting me. They aren’t thinking right now, “Wow, that girl was so weird. Who does she think she just is to just show up like that?”

This is something we tend to do—we think other people are thinking about us more than they are. And even if they are talking about me, it’s hard to care because I won’t go away from this night remembering them.

I’ll remember Harrison, the nineteen-year-old jazz cellist who would love to teach music.

I’ll remember his mom, who wrote and created a photography book around flowers and an abandoned house in Detroit.

I’ll remember twinkle lights in the trees.

I’ll remember the soft breeze on a warm night.

I’ll remember the unbelievable graciousness of a stranger who welcomed me into his home and his party.

I’ll remember the man at the bar who totally understood why I came. He had also read Shonda Rhimes A Year of Yes and he loved it too.

And most of all, I’ll remember that I don’t need armor in life. I don’t need to shield myself from the unknown. I don’t need to be comfortable at all times in order to feel I’m on the right path.

I just need to show up. I need to flow with what’s happening. When you show up, it’s amazing how the Universe shows up for you in return.
